I know with Amazon there can be multiple sellers for the same exact part, some of which Amazon graces with free shipping (3-5 day for orders over $25 for regular users, or free 2 Day for Prime members). Lately, I've noticed PCPartpicker has been listing prices for sellers on Amazon that aren't amazon prime eligible, despite the shipping costs bringing the total cost above the amazon prime price. EX: The FX-6300 is currently listed as $114.99+$11.42 shipping, which brings the total to $126.41, however, the Amazon Prime option is $118.99, and with free shipping, which makes the total still $118.99, which is cheaper overall despite having the higher base price. It would pretty cool if there were an option to prefer the Prime price over other sellers, if possible, because that free shipping can make it cheaper for a lot of people, even if they aren't Prime members.
